Stay at Downtown Charleston Hotels for Food and Wine Fest

Want to experience some of the best food and wine in the world while being around culinary masters like Michelle Bernstein and Hugh Acheson?  Then you are not going to want to miss the BB&T Food and Wine Festival held annually in historic downtown Charleston. This four day event includes some of the best food, wine and cooking demonstrations anywhere. Celebrity chefs, local Charleston chefs, wine experts and authors will all be on hand to give presentations and interact with the crowd.

This year’s events include:

  • Soul Food Shuffle– Culinary  Expert Jeff Allen will give a walking tour about the importance of soul food to Charleston before you board a shuttle where it will take you to various Gullah and soul food establishments around the city.
  • Master Class: Pickling 101 – Celebrity Chefs Hugh Acheson, Steven Satterfield and Paul Virant teach you everything you ever wanted to know (and some you didn’t) about pickling.
  • The Butcher, the Baker + the Artisan Cheese Maker – Husband and wife duo Matt and Kate Jennings will be serving up mouthwatering sandwiches while explaining about rustic baking and utilizing artisan cheeses.
  • Charleston City Paper Presents Waffle House Smackdown – Local and celebrity chefs, including Edward Lee, compete in a timed competition to re-create iconic dishes from Waffle House.
